Review: Sucker Bet

Sucker Bet is James Swain’s third Tony Valentine novel, and with it the series really finds it form—the characterizations gel, the plot is fast and funny, the prose is tight, and you can feel how much Swain cares about his characters.

Swain is a recognized gambling expert, and the insider knowledge he drops throughout the novel lifts it above other crime stories.

Highly recommended.
